Ma(m)bo Song Lyrics


PAUL KEATING:
There's a tale I heard
Of an island man
Tough and undeterred, he said "Haven't you heard?
This land - our land!"
"We belong"
That's what the High Court said
So when you sing this song, you gotta sing it for Ed.
For Eddie.
Ready?
BAND:
Ready!
Mabo!
Mabo!
Mabo!
KEATING:
What's that name?
BAND:

KEATING:
For the Meriam people

KEATING:
It was very unequal

KEATING:
Was it totally legal? Oh no!
Watch me now!

KEATING:
Native title
BAND:

KEATING:
It's alive and vital
BAND:
Mabo!
KEATING:
Speak the truth and make it so!
And if we follow this philosophy
Demand a land beyond compare
Then girt by faith and generosity
We'll all combine to redefine a beauty rich and rare
In joyful strains then let us sing...
ALL:
Advance Australia...
[Thanks to Jess for lyrics]
